LAS VEGAS (10/23/12)--Switch, a designer and operator of business technology ecosystems, announced record‐breaking sales for the month of September. The company sold 533 cabinets of space and 7.6 megavolt-amperes (MVAs) of power over a 30‐day period.
Switch is a CUNA Strategic Services provider.
"Companies have found that by partnering with the multi‐trillion dollar buying power of the Switch technology business ecosystem they can substantially improve their tech return on investment while staying in lock‐step with the newest offerings in connectivity and cloud services," said Rob Roy, CEO and founder of Switch.
During the past year, Switch delivered 40 MVA to its clients at the Switch SuperNAP‐7 facility. There are two units of work that describe the size of a data center: the amount of deliverable, critical load that the Universal Power Supply (UPS) system can support (MVA of UPS), and the deliverable amount of cubic feet per minute/tons of cooling that the heating ventilation and air conditioning system can supply.
Switch is also constructing its eighth facility. The firm anticipates SuperNAP-8, located in Las Vegas, will be client‐ready in May. Switch continues to make new advancements in data center technologies. The new facility will house several new best‐of‐breed data center innovations, all designed by Roy, who currently holds 169 patented and patent‐pending data center inventions.
